Dead Show/podcast for 11/13/15

Yikes! Friday the 13th! but not only is it Friday the 13th it is ODD day! - 11/13/15 :)
I decided such an auspicious occasion deserved an unusual show and I think this one fits the bill. It features *three* songs that would never be played by the band again - one in this first set and the other two in the second set that we'll hear next week.
This is from November 21st, 1985 at the Kaiser in Oakland CA. The show beings with a song that hasn't been played in over 15 years - 'Big Boy Pete'.. they then move into a fun 'Dire Wolf'.. 'Little Red Rooster' features some great Hammond organ from Brett. 'Brown-Eyed Women' follows, always a favorite and in the Uncle->Mexicali that follows Jerry does some fine pickin'.. The set closes with a Ramble on Rose->Looks Like Rain->Might As Well.. It is not a very long first set, nevertheless I hope you enjoy it!
Next week we'll listen to the second set with *two* songs that receive their final performance...

I rather enjoyed Jerry's raspy voice here, if only for variety's sake. Can't say I would like it 100% of the time. And, he really put some vocal gusto into a couple of these tunes.

Curious to see the setlist for next week, and see whether I can determine which tunes received their "swan song" treatment. I was tempted to look up the setlist now; but, I rather enjoy surprises, and have decided to wait. =)
